You need to say the configuration.

For small font sizes it looked more ugly. The question is what font size 
you use, what size the libvob implementation use? Do you know that you can 
use font size like 50 and render it to size 5? With the demo it looks much 
more bolder without this 'hint' and the change is not huge on the size of 30.

You can fix the thing probably by giving a HINT_BIT or something found 
from the FTT project's implementation to OpenGL text.
